About the book:

Mukiwa begins in the magnificent mountains of eastern Rhodesia in the 1960s. In the eyes of young Peter Godwin, the land is an endless source of wonder and adventure: of leopard hunting, witch doctors, lepers, and snakes. Then one day he stumbles upon the body of his neighbor, killed by African guerrillas, and this perception is changed forever. Its an unforgettable tale of innocence lost under African skies as we follow Godwin's awakening to the often savage struggle between whites and blacks, his horror when he is forced to fight in a civil war he detests, and his experiences as a journalist covering the country's violent transition to black rule as Rhodesia's colonial era comes to an end and the new state of Zimbabwe is born from its bloody ashes.
